Encore One More Saturday Night
***with Martin Fierro and Joe Ellis on horns (I don't hear them on Eyes as the Compendium and other sources state)
I haven't seen this show making the rounds as a soundboard so I thought I'd get it out there. A great show in the same vein as the previous night (9/11/73). The song order on these discs differs somewhat from other printed and on-line sources so I'm not sure what is correct. Given reel-to-reel stoppage and possible editing between each song it's hard to pin down the song order, much less when Set 1 ends and Set 2 begins.
These SHN's are derived from audio discs I received about 3 years ago. Enjoy!..........Susan (12/2002)

The low volume was just how they mastered the board tape. It was not low volume! This was inside the hall. On the first night they spoke a bit about the wall before playing Sat. Night, Said it was for outside. They said we are going to turn it up for the last chorus of Sat. Night and to protect your ears. We were up in the balcony. The concrete under our feet vibrated.
This recording was the first set. Doug Sahm opened both nights and the Dead started at 9pm, took a short break at midnight, and played till 3am both nights. The second sets were 3 hour jams.
When the crowd wanted more at the end, pretty sure it was Bob that said come back tomorrow and we will take all the chairs off the floor and admission will be half priced and to bring blankets to set on. Admission was $6 the first night and $3 the second.

Here's how I remember it
Based on an often failing memory, what I recall is that, while the crowd was clamoring for an encore on Sept. 11, Phil came out and said something to the effect of, "Hello folks. We're pretty tired so we're going to call it quits for tonight, BUT we're going to come back tomorrow night and play another show for (about) $6.00, general admission only.
Just a few months after the Dead/Allman Bros. shows at RFK stadium in June 1973, these guys became MY band.
Thus, it became almost imperative to see them back-to-back while on tour, a tradition that continues to today.
Best regards to all other contributors who keep this site alive.

Track labelling error: track 8 is actually Ramble On Rose, not Tennessee Jed. Haven't heard the rest yet... Set break is after Let It Grow. First set is 4-starish, I'd say, with some great highlights, including Sing Your Blues Away which is a sweet live song and a tremendous Let It Grow in which Bobby & Jerry play crazed rhythm guitar while Fierro & Ellis go to town in a very Mingus-like fashion.
I have no idea which set lists for this show are accurate, but the evidence here suggests that the second set is very short. Eyes is cut at the beginning, so there could be a lot between A&A & Eyes that got cut. This is the first time Garcia really starts adding the slides up and down at the end of the phrases in the post-Eyes jam, and I know 'cause I've been waiting for them as I've followed the 1973 shows from the beginning!
In all, a good show, but not a patch on the previous night.

Haven't gotten to listen to this whole show yet, but what strikes me most in the first few songs was the great tempo. In later years, songs like Bertha tended to be played at blazing speeds, but I personally thing the whole sound was more soulful and had more of a groove when they played em like they did at this show...really enjoying this show.

I have no idea what Chris is talking about...
You're way off here buddy...this is a surprisingly good performance considering how greatly it's overshadowed by the previous night. Bird Song, Weather Report Suite, and especially the jazzy, high energy Eyes of the World are all superb.

Good music w/ audio problems
Nice sound if only the audio problems didn't exist. Nothing wrong with the playing tho.

I'm giving this show the lowest rating that I'll ever give a show from 1973. At a low volume, it's perfectly pleasant and relaxing. But if I went to this show expecting to be blown away I'd be very very disappointed.
Hungover? Strung out? Who knows. A pedestrian and boring night out for the band.
